One challenge that NATO faces is the vulnerability of its military forces and critical infrastructure to terrorist attacks from the waterside in ports and harbours.
CMRE is developing a system concept for early contact and warning above and below the water in ports.
The Centre is also engaging military and civilian security providers early in the concept development cycle in this new area of research by hosting conferences, offering courses and hosting virtual red-on-blue gaming exercises on CMRE's OpenSea Tactical Theatre Simulator.

Modelling & Simulation (M&S) is a critical technology for NATO and the Nations with applications to defence, homeland security and economics. Computer models are able to mime behaviours of existing real world systems, or hypothetical future systems. M&S enables experiments in a virtual environment with the potential to increase understanding and performance.

At CMRE, a major component of maritime security is maritime situational awareness (MSA), which ultimately addresses the question: is this ship behaving in a way that requires further investigation? Researchers are trying to answer that question using the Collaborative Multi-Sensor/Source Fusion and Tracking Tool (COMSSOFT), developed at the Centre.
